Cat.No. CSI 008-01

Cat. No.
CSI 008-01
Product name
Anti-Type I Collagen (human, calf, pig, sheep, dog, goat)

Mouse monoclonal antibody


CSI 008-01 is highly specific for native type I collagen and shows no evidence of cross-reactivity with type II, III, V and VI collagens in inhibition ELISA and immunoblotting, and no evidence of cross-reactivity with other connective tissue proteins (laminin, fibronectin, elastin). CSI 008-01 has a Ka of approximately 2.5 x 106 M-1 for human type I collagen.

Type I collagen is present in connective tissue and bone where it makes up about 90% of the organic matrix. Defects in one or both alleles of the type I collagen gene causes "brittle bone disease" (osteogenesis imperfecta). Patients suffering from such defects have low levels of fully functional type I collagen resulting in fragile bones.

Application 1

CSI 008-01 can be used to detect collagens by ELISA. 

Application 2

In immunoblotting CSI 008-01 detects human type I collagen only in its native triple helix form.

Application 3

CSI 008-01 can be used for immunohistochemistry on frozen unfixed sections of human (1, 2), and bovine (3, 4) skin. If fixation of tissue is required, acetone or ethanol is recommended.(5, 6)
